The Fraser Basin Council invites Indigenous and rural BC communities to express interest in taking part in a Community Climate Preparedness Virtual Workshop Series in the fall or winter of 2020/2021.

These virtual climate change preparedness training sessions will be offered through the BC Regional Adaptation Collaborative initiative and will consist of 4 training sessions on the basics of how to conduct a climate change adaptation engagement and planning process. Links will be made between building resilience to climate change and building general community resilience as part of the recovery from COVID-19.

This opportunity is available to First Nations and local governments in small communities with populations of less than 10,000 people.

The series will consist of 4 training sessions on the basics of how to conduct a climate change adaptation engagement and planning process. This may include looking at a resilience area of interest, such as food sovereignty.

The series will support participants to develop a near-term action plan to advance climate preparedness in their community so that they have a clear path forward for advancing this work on-the-ground.

They will also gain an understanding of in-person and virtual facilitation skills, and an understanding of the skills and approaches to look for in a consultant providing this type of service.
